"To have someone put the level of confidence in you that surgery requires is a true privilege," Dr. Josh says, "In turn, I believe in providing my patients with extensive education about their procedure and comprehensive, compassionate care."

Dr. Josh Walker graduated from Mercer University School of Medicine and completed his residency and chief residency in surgery at the Medical College of Georgia. He provides laparoscopic surgery, pediatric surgery, wound care, as well as upper and lower endoscopies. Dr. Walker also has special expertise in surgical treatments for diseases of the breast. He performs an ultrasound guided sentinel node biopsy, a minimally invasive procedure that is now the standard for breast cancer diagnosis.
